Abstract

Results of one-dimensional time dependent analysis of a detachment front in a PDD plasma are reported. Effects of the cross-field particle and energy trasport in a divertor region on a partially detached plasma are particularly discussed. It was found that such transport effects in the divertor region can prevent the detachment fronts from moving upstream, and that the position of the detachment front in a steady state is thermally unstable against the neutral density in the divertor region.
